COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kolsch, the clean and refreshing beer style of Cologne, Germany, quenches summertime thirst. This pale golden ale with a lightly fruity aroma is cold-conditioned or lagered after its primary fermentation. More simply, our Summertime uses only the finest malts and German hops to create the perfect beer for hot Summer days and warm Summer nights.

I think that pale ales and lagers get a tough break around here. Bottle. Poured a pale gold color with lots of carbonation. Bubbly head that left fairly soon. Some lacing. Slightly fruity, hop aroma. Champagne-like dryness, with a great thirst quenching taste. Not overpowering. There’s a faint tartness, like cherries, and some peachy undertones. I liked it.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Wonderful, just wonderful, on a hot summer day. Light, slighlty fruity, smooth, easy on the palate. Just a wonderful beer

Bottle. Pale lager colored. Thin white head fades quickly, no lacing. Fruity, light aroma. Taste is also fairly light. Overall a pretty delicate beer. Nothing here overpowering, well balanced light malts and hops. Pretty nice for the style.

Pailhead (6386) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is a rather weak light malt, apple, and hops. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with very small white head. Kind of a weak flavor. Light malt. Light apple. Finishes like a lot of euro pilsners with a little sourness. light bitterness. Second Kolsh I’ve had, and I just don’t think this is my style of beer. Easy drinking, but not a lot of character.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Color is a perfectly golden hue, with a beautiful, blossoming white head atop. Aroma is lovely, with some citrus and spice. Body is light, easy-drinking, with a smooth texture, and never sacrificing anything in the way of taste. Very tingly hops, great balance, with hops only slightly outweighing hops. Truly a perfect summer beer. You nearly forget that you are drinking an ale. Extraordinarily smooth, but fully tasty and rewarding in every aspect!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Bright lemon-yellow body with substantial carbonation and a soft sudsy snow white head. Nose of light citrus, lightly buttery malt, honeysuckle, and a touch of Noble hops. Flavor has citrusy white wine qualities plus mild grassy hops. Dry finish with low bitterness. Ultra-crisp, clean and refreshing. A great rendition of a very delicate style. Thanks to TTB for sending this enjoyable beer.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2004
Bright, hazy straw gold. Nose is lightly fruity and crisp, flavor has a surprisingly hefty malt backbone of sweetness mixed with lemony crispness. Quite refreshing.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - SEP 28, 2004
on draft chicago, somewhere: found this to be similiar to their 312 beer. crisp refreshing lagerish and boreing with slight notes of citrus and puckering hop malt bitter end.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Not a very exceptional beer. It pours a pale straw color with steady carbonation and a thin, soapy whit head that lasts the duration. A light, bitter malt aroma with a hint of the citric. Tastes like much like a lager with a touch of lemon too it. The hops come through only lightly in the finish.

12 oz bottle. Served cold. Bright white head of foam on top of yellow beer. Aroma is lemon/grassy, flavor is lightly citrus with very light malt and a crisp feel that finishes with a light hoppy bitterness. I’m not familiar with the Kolsch style, but this one reminds me of a very llight pilsener--not very interesting, but pretty good with a summer meal or for quaffing in the dog days of summer.
